execline is a small, non-interactive, shell-like scripting language.
execline is now as powerful as a shell: it features conditional loops, getopt-style option handling, filename globbing, and more. Meanwhile, its syntax is far more logic and predictable than the shell's syntax, and has no security issues.
execline follows the slashpackage convention.
* Create a /package directory:
mkdir -p /package
chmod 1755 /package
Unpack the execline package:
tar -zxpvf execline-1.06.tar.gz
if you do not have GNU tar, check with your gunzip and tar manual pages.
If you want to use another compiler and linker than the default, edit conf-compile/conf-cc and conf-compile/conf-ld as needed.
For instance, if your libc makes it easy, you could modify those files to make static binaries, which perform better. Don't try this with the GNU libc, though - on Linux, use the diet libc.
If you want to change the default stripping behaviour of executables and libraries, edit conf-compile/conf-stripbins and conf-compile/conf-striplibs as needed.
Compile and set up execline:
or perform package/compile to compile it, then look into the command subdirectory and copy the binaries where you need them.
You can then delete the compile subdirectory to save disk space.
Look into the etc subdirectory: edit the files there to suit your needs, then copy them to /etc.
